Tua Tagovailoa has the support of his head coach, offensive coordinator, Tyreek Hill, and now his tight end.

Mike Gesicki, a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft from Penn State, is becoming a rising star in the National Football League. He’s played 64 games in his first four seasons, totaling 199 catches for 2,255 yards and 13 touchdowns.

The 6-foot-6, 247-pounder is going into his third year with Tagovailoa, and he is excited. Gesicki joined the Breneman Shows Up podcast with fellow Penn State tight end, Adam Breneman. The two discussed a video from the Dolphins’ social media profile where Tagovailoa’s critics were trolling him for an “underthrown” ball. Gesicki said it’s the offseason and fans are bored.

“I love playing with Tua,” Gesicki said. “I’ll say this behind closed doors, I’ll say it on Breneman Shows Up, I’ll say it on ESPN, but I think Tua is great. I think he has a really strong arm, and he’s extremely accurate. He can put the ball where he wants it.”

Gesicki told Breneman that he was nervous about catching passes from a left-handed quarterback, but Tagovailoa’s ‘super tight spiral’ makes it not a big deal. The two have formed nice chemistry going into their third season together. Gesicki enjoyed with Mike McDaniel did in the offseason as Miami’s new head coach. He is ready to see Tagovailoa become a bonafide star in the NFL.
